Vacation Lag

I've been having a mixture of emotions/feelings since coming back from our San Diego vacay

Excited to have my Sunny around me again. I missed her cute doggie face. 

Overwhelmed by the feeling of things being behind in my absence. I actually did a great job of separating myself  from all responsibilities while I was away, which is usually hard for me to do, but as soon as I got back I was cleaning the house, catching up on e-mail correspondence and making grocery lists .

Tired/Oddly Alert. I don't think my body actually caught up with the three hour west coast time delay until the last day, and then after a 8 hour travel day to get back, and a return to east coast time, I'm going through bouts of alertness at strange times of the day, and bouts of sleepiness at strange times of the day. 

Extreme need to get back in the gym. We ate. A LOT. I definitely have some damage to reverse in the gym these coming weeks. We don't get a vacation every day, so I didn't want to limit my fish tacos, mexican food, and churros :-)

What I'm not feeling is "wish I was still on vacation." My husband and I are really blessed to have a great "regular" life, so while vacation was awesome, there's no remorse in getting back to normality. 

What do you do to get yourself back into the routine after a vacation?


  1. I usually like coming home after a vacation. Everything is yours, where you want it, and you have everything you need. I'm glad you didn't limit yourself on vacation. I like giving into a vacation when I'm away. Indulging is a part of it for me, at least more than I would at home. It helps me to empty the car (if we drive) immediately so I don't have to think about it later, and put things away and then take a nap before making dinner/food. Then it's fun to go through all the photos and whatnot.

    1. Yea, I couldn't imagine not tasting all the staple foods. I started out trying to be conscious, and I didn't go too overboard, but I didn't want to miss out on anything, and I figure one week couldn't hurt TOO bad lol
